Maximum Games has announced that they will be releasing the modern iteration of Putty Squad for PlayStation Platforms on March 11th of this year. The game will carry a price tag of $29.99 on all platforms, being set at a relatively discounted price compared to most home console releases.

Originally developed by System 3 Software for the Amiga 1200 in 1994, Putty Squad was a critical-darling and achieved cult success on the Super Nintendo that has continued to last for nearly three decades. The game is a classic platformer that tests your ingenuity as you must stretch, inflate, moprh and punch your way to success.

The remake of the retro-platformer  will feature key additions such as new graphics, moves, modes, leaderboards and more.

Putty Squad is scheduled for a March 11th release on PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

    cool, hope its half as good as the SNES orginal

    I’ve never played the original, but it seems a bit expensive for a remake of a game from that era. Other games from that era that have been remade on the Vita (Alien Breed and Superfrog HD come to mind) are only 1/3 of the price, but I don’t know how much new content this game will have compared to those.

    I guess I’ll wait for TVL’s review to see if it’s worth it. 🙂

    $30 for Putty Squad? Good luck with that price tag.

      Jesus Christ, really? They’re insane. That’ll mean around £15-20 in the UK. I won’t be paying more than £5. Shame, as I was looking forward to this title.

      Just like rovio did with angry birds, these guys are way too greedy trying to milk a game with 20 years, that was not even that great… right!

  • Дмитрий Гермес

    This game on the PlayStation 4 is already there! Correct!

    The thing about Putty Squad is that it isn’t a particularly strong or even fun game. I played the SNES games in preperation for this and can’t say I enjoyed them at all. It’s very much a collect-em-up platformer which is a type I have never enjoyed. Sorry guys, I know you are a British studio and I wish you every success but I can not say I will be buying.
